Silent for various years, Favre Leuba is back, re-stimulated with the dispatch of an assortment of tough and useful watches, for example, the Raider Harpoon or the amazing Bivouac 9000 . For Baselworld 2018, the brand presents another strong plunge watch packing multi-practical punch and a cool (and uncommon) mechanical profundity measure. Meet the new Favre-Leuba Raider Bathy 120 MemoDepth.
The Favre Leuba Raider Bathy MemoDepth demonstrates profundity on two scales: the middle hand, coaxial to the hours and minutes, shows the current profundity. The 3 o’clock sub-dial records the basic greatest profundity came to (up to 120m) got with a reset pusher at 4 o’clock.
The Bathy is an advanced restoration of the brand’s rich plunge watch custom. Introduced during the brand’s primes (1968), the Bathy was one of the main plunge watches outfitted with a profundity check. The name Bathy comes from the Greek bathus, which means deep.
The 2018 Bathy owes some impact to its predecessors, yet it is in no way, shape or form a basic generation. All things considered, this uber plunge watch is a cutting edge creation, standing apart with a retro-modern plan complemented with striking tones. At 48mm x 19mm, this watch is enormous and flaunts the gigantic measurements you need to expect with such complications. Molded out of evaluation 5 titanium, it is shockingly light regardless of these measurements. The rakish barrel-shape case fuses a round opening for the dial, outlined by a scored unidirectional pivoting bezel. The crown is screw-down. The protected pusher with its enemy of slide surface permits resetting the imperative most extreme profundity indication.
The dark dial is upgraded with profundity signs in blue. The external scale shows the current profundity on a light blue to a dark foundation, with basic decompression stops featured in red. The most extreme profundity is recorded on the 3 o’clock sub-dial. The faceted hour markers, just as the hour and moment hands, highlight radiant material for ideal intelligibility submerged. The force save is shown at 12 o’clock, the date at 6 o’clock while the little seconds counter scopes at 9 o’clock.
Turning the watch over, the case back highlights a framework looking like the brand’s logo and permits the water to set up contact with the aneroid case. When plunging, profundity expands the pressing factor. Each 10 meters (33 ft) of depth adds another bar. As the pressing factor expands, the case contracts. Straight movement is communicated to a stuff system and changed over into a rotational development. Water-obstruction is of 200 m. Accuracy is key for this complex in-house instrument as the extension/constriction of the container made in an extraordinary copper composite should be customary. An inherent mechanical limiter guarantees that neither the pressing factor film nor the profundity measure is harmed if the wearer plunges further than the ideal range.
The watch is controlled by the hand-wound type FL321 dependent on the Eterna Caliber 39 re-designed by Favre-Leuba. The profundity measure module is an in-house advancement. Running at 28,800 vibrations each hour, it can save to 65 hours of force reserve.
The Favre Leuba Raider ‘Bathy MemoDepth’ is worn on an incorporated elastic tie embellished with the brand’s name and gotten with a pin clasp. Cost is set at CHF 8,500. For more data, you can visit www.favre-leuba.com .
